On a short trip to Pennsylvania, I was able to briefly explore Pittsburgh, the "Iron City", for a few days.
From the first step downtown, you could feel the industrial spirit of the city. A history forged from iron and steel.
Countless steel bridges, landmarks and charming buildings underline the charm of steel and coal - and at the same time, the city is undergoing an incredible transformation into a center for technology, culture and art. Street life, baseball and American football also play an extremely important role in people's identification with their city.
It was definitely a highlight to drive across the Monongahela River to South Side and see the illuminated skyline at night.
Here are a few photos that prove that Pittsburgh is more than just steel and coal.
